  • Allocation Order, Bobby Convey, Winter Transfers

San Jose could be taking one big step forward very soon. The San Jose Murcery News is reporting the club is close to signing midfielder Bobby Convey.

A Major League Soccer source confirmed the deal is almost complete for Convey, who has been playing at Reading in the English league since 2004. The source declined to be identified because some of the paperwork has to be finalized.

Convey, who played for the United States in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, last competed in MLS with DC United.

We will probably know more about this possible deal in the morning.

If the Quakes do get to sign Convey it means they will have to use their top allocation spot to do so.

I like this deal for San Jose as long as Convey stays healthy. Its a move he needs to make really to get back in favor with the US National side and it’s manager Bob Bradley. I think it worked well for a guy like Cory Gibbs when he came back from Europe to MLS last year. I see it happening the same way for Convey if he stays healthy.

More details will follow soon….

    That's the key though, isn't it? "If he stays healthy" I hope he does, for San Jose's sake, but more because I think he can be a major contributor for the Nats.
